Q.

Vi-daylin with Iron

Hi
My boy is 10 months old and the pediatrician prescribed Vi-daylin with iron. As soon as he smells it, he shuts his month and I can not get him to swallow. Is there an alternative?

There is usually no need to give any extra vitamins and iron to a baby of 10 months. Most of the formulas are fortified with vitamins and iron.

I add it to my LO' s Milk bottle at night cause it does taste worse than revolting - like rusty old nails
